Ireland Chapter Provides Once in a Lifetime Trip

by Shane Costigan

My name is Shane Costigan. I recently graduated from University College in Dublin with a degree in microbiology and have been accepted in a master’s program in biotechnology and business. At an event sponsored by PDA’s Ireland Chapter, I saw a poster advertising a grant the chapter would award for students interested in attending the 2nd PDA Europe Annual Meeting in Berlin. I applied and, thankfully, was chosen as one of the students afforded the opportunity to participate. As a result, I am now a member of the Ireland Chapter as a Young Professional member.
